It’s official… I’m going to be a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing 2016!

The announcement was made this morning, Monday 8th August, on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, where I confirmed the news I would be participating in the new series live in the studio. You can listen to the interview again here.

I’d like to say I’m just really excited about learning to dance on TV, but the truth is I’m also scared to death. Making a speech in Parliament seems a piece of cake compared to this, but hopefully I can stick around for a couple of weeks, and have a lot of fun in the process.

Strictly is a firm favourite in our living room, and it feels like a dream to be going on myself, especially for Len’s last series. I’m just hoping it doesn’t turn into a nightmare too quickly!
